Flic Everett is a freelance writer based in Manchester, England. Over the past 18 years she has written for most major newspapers and magazines. In the name of work, she’s climbed 30-foot trees, ridden a horse bareback wearing a cocktail dress (her, not it), been white water rafting on the River Jordan and swum with dolphins in Jamaica. She’s also had a drink with George Best, spent New Year’s Eve with Prince Naz, huddled in a hotel room with Howard Marks and served (unofficially) as Anthea Turner’s therapist. Despite that, she spends a lot of time drinking tea and staring out of my office window. She is a columnist, agony aunt, celebrity interviewer, feature writer, broadcaster (she once presented Woman’s Hour- the most grown up she’s ever felt), editor and author. Having just published first novel she’s begun the second. Mostly, she loves what she does.
